Joshua Freelove spent his college career as a traveling man. He signed with Toledo out of High School but the Rockets fell apart so he moved on to Alabama State where he played one season before that program ended up on the wrong end of an APR ban. Then he came to Buffalo for a single season, and with the Bulls he averaged 13.5 points per game and helped lift the Bulls to their first ever MAC East Division title.

Now after graduating he is taking the show to South America.

This week Freelove signed with the Guerreros de Bogota, the defending champions of the Liga Directv de Baloncesto. The league, formed in 1988 is the professional basketball federation in Colombia and Bogota is among the newest teams.

In their inaugural season, 2011, the team reached the playoffs as one of the top four squads. Then last season the "Pirates" returned to the to the playoffs, eventually winning the championship

The Pirates play in the Coliseo El Salitre, the premier indoor sports venue located in Colombia's capitol, Bogata. The current capacity of the arena is 7,000 spectators.

He is the second Bull to sign internationally this summer, following Javon McCrea who is playing professional ball in  Germany.
